Club Crew ute is back
THE International Motor Show saw the return of a popular variant of the Triton range, the Club Cab Utility. The new variant is at the forefront of a range of updates to the vehicle as part of its Model Year 2011 MN Triton line-up.
The Triton Club Cab is based on the 2011 Model Year four-wheel drive GLX 2.5-litre high powered diesel engine Single Cab range with the following additional interior features; bucket seats, flip up rear occasional use seats, lever type park brake, and floor console with lid and cup holder, and starts from $38,990.
President and CEO of MMAL, Masahiko Takahashi said he is pleased to welcome back the Triton Club Cab to the Triton model line up.
“Triton is one of the mainstays of the Mitsubishi range and has always proven popular as a practical and rugged work vehicle that can take all the hard knocks thrown at it,” Takahashi said. “At the same time, Triton's recognised four-wheel drive capabilities and car-like comfort have seen it used for recreational activities as well”.
“The result is that this car is in great demand – which is why we have decided to bring the Triton Club Cab back into the Triton model range”.
The Triton Club Cab is available in five-speed manual with easy select 4WD mode and heavy duty suspension as standard. The 2.5-litre four cylinder, DOHC, 16 valve powerplant generates 131kW of power at 4000rpm and 400Nm of torque at 2000rpm – and delivers combined fuel economy figures of 8.1 litres per 100 kilometres.
The Triton Club Cab is fitted with Mitsubishi's industry-leading safety features including driver and passenger SRS airbags, driver and front passenger seat belt pretensioners and ABS with EBD, with Active Stability Control available as an optional extra.
The Club Cab will be available in two variants Pick Up and Cab Chassis, and both offer optional Active Stability and Traction Control and Diff Lock.
Load carrying and towing are critical factors when choosing a work-and-play utility and Mitsubishi has ensured the Club Cab will answer the requirements of the busy worker. The long-bed tray offers a total tray length of 1805mm, and a total tray height of 460mm, perfect for sliding on larger objects.
